Saying 'ass' and head shots with chairs don't make the product any better.
Well you can't realistically debate that can you. It's completley subjective. Cena saying 'ass' instead of whatever silly stuff he's scripted to say would make the show better for you. For the majority of his fans, it'd get a slightly more muted reaction.Semi true. Saying ass instead of something John Cena would say, like poop chute or whatever does in fact make the product better.
The build to this Wrestlemania has been pretty poor.WWE has far bigger problems than "PG". It's the goddamn booking. Even if it suddenly went back to TV-14, if they kept everything else the same, it would still suck. There would just be additional blood, swearing and general profanity on top of the suck.
Exactly. That's what people don't seem to understand. Everything they're doing falls under the PG rating. Until they're swearing in every sentence, bleeding every night, or having live sex celebrations in the middle of the ring, the rating won't change.'Ass' and a chairshot aren't indications of TV-14 anyway, both of those would easily fly under a PG rating. They're just making things a little edgier, there's no big fundamental change I can see.
Not true. As long as it isn't every match, a little bit of blood would still fall under the PG rating.Until someone blades, there are NO signs of WWE leaving the PG rating.
Best post of the thread. Well said, Bender.WWE isn't and shouldn't go back to 14+.
PG is best business move WWE has made in over a decade.
They expand their potential viewers(short term loss,but long term gain), clean up wrestlings image to the media(since the medias idea of wrestling is just two steroid guys in tights rolling around the ring,bleeding and swearing) and the best thing of all is that 90% of things we saw on 14+ TV in the past decade are allowed on PGTV.
Things in attitude era were real close to 18+(I remember reading something about an article in canada how people were complaining about WWE being rated only 14+ in canada back then).
But most things seen and said in WWE 5-10 years ago are perfectly allowed on PG, WWE is just slowly turning things people saw 5-10 years ago back into natural things that happen on tv. People grew up seeing and hearing certain things on wwe, and now they're doing the same thing to the younger audience, slowly making certain things seem natural to them.
